    These are interviews that I have on tape or CD, including both Church and solo interviews.  I'd eventually like to get them all transcribed, so if you're quick with a keyboard and would like to help out, please let me know and I'll put your name on the job.

  • Interviews 1996 to 2001  ( 44 items )
    The band release Magician Among the Spirits, and the collapse of the U.S record company almost causes the band to break up.

    Reviews found in magazines and other web sites that are written by music journalists.
  • Fan reviews of albums, concerts and others  ( 37 items )

  • Peter outside the band  ( 3 items )
